Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Narrative Art and the Portrayal of Faith and Social Injustice
by Cabrera, Raul, M.F.A., The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, 2017, 98; 10268904
Abstract (Summary)

The artwork I strive to create infuses what interests me and is important to me all the while taking issues I feel are important to address and incorporating them as well. In the case of the exhibit Spiritual Awakening, the passion of creating narrative imagery in the form of a graphic novel as well as the yearning to express my faith was the vehicle to bring to light many social injustices in the form of criminal activity from murder to corruption. Though these themes have been seen in different aspects in a variety of mediums, rarely have they been conveyed all together in one package. As these three things are formed and displayed in Spiritual Awakening, it is meant to produce a healthy dialogue to not only see the nature of some people who lean towards criminal activity, but to also seek to become better themselves.
